2017 was an incredible year for Habitat and for our homeowner partners. We were so fortunate to work with our friends at THV11 on a home for a single mom who worked incredibly hard to build her home. THV11 documented the entire process and showed Arkansans what it's like to help build strength, stability, and self-reliance for a family in need of affordable housing.
Homeowner LaKisha Waters put in 300 hours of sweat equity raising the walls, decking the roof, installing siding, and laying sod. Her kids were along for the ride the whole time, helping where they could and climbing the big oak tree in the back, too. They're all thrilled to be in their new home. We're so thankful for our sponsors Thrivent Financial, Mister Sparky, PC Hardware, and Seal Energy Solutions, without whom this would not have been possible.
